Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Amy Collette, Founder of Unleash Your Inner Author, located in Louisville, CO, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business is Unleash Your Inner Author, a book coaching service for first-time authors who have transformational stories.

Tell us about yourself

Helping to raise the positive vibration of the planet is my mission. What that means is that everyone who overcomes a barrier, fear, or even trauma and finds joy in life has raised their vibration. I find that most people who do that want to spread the message and help others elevate their own energy too.

So I get to help people who have found the secret to living fulfilling and joyful lives despite some hardships. They want to share what has transformed their lives, with the goal of helping others do the same.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I consider every book that I help to publish to be a huge accomplishment for the author and for me and my team. I'm very proud of what we do and how we do it.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

For me, it's consistently showing up in all the areas that are important, including being completely present with clients, being clear and transparent with my message, staying informed about my industry, business trends, and technology, and maintaining a healthy balance in all areas of life and relationships. It's a balancing act that is constantly in flux.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Make sure you love it so you can stick with it through the highs and lows.
  2. Take excellent care of your clients, your team, and yourself.
  3. Make a positive impact every day, even if it's something small. It makes you feel complete and makes the world a better, brighter place for all of us.
